It’s hard to beat a steaming mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day; unless that is you avoid lactose in your diet. But now, here’s hot chocolate for the intolerant.

With most hot chocolate mixes containing milk or whey powder, the options to enjoy a quality hot chocolate if you’re dairy or lactose free are very limited…until now that is

Thanks to free-from drinks specialists Sweet Revolution, everyone can now enjoy an indulgently rich hot chocolate. Their organic instant hot chocolate uses lactose free coconut milk powder, instead of whey or dairy milk, and organic raw crystallised coconut nectar, which is unrefined, unfiltered, unbleached and contains no additives or preservatives, in place of refined cane sugar.

Taste is what really counts though and the hot chocolate is based on Criolla cacao from Peru. The Criolla bean represents only 5% of the world’s cacao production and is of a very high quality, aromatic and lacking in bitterness. 

The beans are minimally processed at low temperatures to preserve these natural characteristics and the resulting flavour produces a rich and delicious hot chocolate like no other.

Adding to the feel good factor of sipping on a mug of Sweet Revolution’s hot chocolate is the fact that all the ingredients used are organic and vegan and the cacao is grown by small farmers working in a co-operative which supports the local economy.

Easy to make, simply add hot water or your favourite milk alternative to create an indulgent and rich hot chocolate.
